I’m shaking things up with a promo post for a blog blitz hosted by Rachel’s Random Resources. I absolutely love the look of this book, and will be posting a review later on. In the meantime, let’s take a look at what makes it so intriguing.
Barnabas Tew, a detective in Victorian London, is having a hard time making a name for himself, probably because most of his clients end up dead before he can solve their cases. His luck is about to change, though, for better or worse: Anubis, the Egyptian god of the dead, notices him and calls him to the Egyptian underworld. A terrible kidnapping has occurred; one that promises to put an end to the status quo and could perhaps even put an end to the entire world. It is up to Barnabas (along with his trusty assistant, Wilfred) to discover the culprit and set things to right. Can he turn his luck around and solve the most important case of his life?
How incredible is that cover? The old style engraving, stylised text and even the author’s name all appeal to me.
Add to that the fact that the book seems to be based on Sherlock Holmes with mythological clients, and I’m sold! I can’t wait to read it! Why not join me, and let me know what you think of it?
